Bulldogs adjusting to the 'farm' mindset

Days spent at the farm for the Mississippi State football team are more than just about football.
It's about getting players in the right mind for a long Southeastern Conference season.
The Bulldogs have spent two days at the farm and head coach Dan Mullen loves the opportunities it presents to his players.
"For our guys, it's a different mindset when you get out there," Mullen said at a media gathering on Tuesday afternoon. "That's the real training camp mindset. This is our time of the year to come together as a team and for guys to develop and focus on what training camp really is about."
For some, training camp is about working on a specific area in their game. For others, especially young players, it's about getting used to what is expected of them.
"It's different for everybody whether it's working technique, learning the whole system (or) learning mental and physical toughness," Mullen said. "All of those different things are incorporated out there. It's so different than any game week or anything else, I think it's easy to focus that way."
